Robbie Robertson's 'How to Become Clairvoyant' gets 'deluxe' treatment
DELUXE EDITION OF 'HOW TO BECOME CLAIRVOYANT,'
ROBBIE ROBERTSON'S NEW ALBUM, AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT BEST BUY
Robertson Performs Lead Single "He Don't Live Here No More" On "The View" today
The deluxe edition of Robbie Robertson's How To Become Clairvoyant (429 Records/Macro-Biotic Records) is available now exclusively at Best Buy stores and www.bestbuy.com. It will be available for the next month only. In addition to the full length CD, which Goldmine calls "Robertson's best yet," the deluxe edition includes a bonus CD with demos of five of the album's tracks - lead single "He Don't Live Here No More," "The Right Mistake," "Fear of Falling," "This Is Where I Get Off" and "Madame X" - plus an outtake of "Houdini," a song from the How To Become Clairvoyant sessions that does not appear on the album.
Today (Wednesday, April 6, 2011) Robertson will perform his Top 10 single "He Don't Live Here No More" on "The View" and guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline." He appeared on "Late Show with David Letterman" last night.
"For all of the now-legendary songs that Robertson penned, he tended to shy away from writing about himself, which makes the revealing nature of his first album in more than ten years such a wonderful surprise," said Relix. "How To Become Clairvoyant finds Robertson tackling personal topics such as his breakup with The Band ('This Is Where I Get Off'), the guitarists who inspired his innovative sound ('Axman') and his early days backing Ronnie Hawkins ('When the Night Was Young')." The Detroit Free Press called it "compelling" and Rolling Stone singled out How To Become Clairvoyant as one of 2011's hottest new albums in its Spring Music Preview:
